Behind the brand is highly regarded aromatherapy expert Pat Princi-Jones, who has worked with the brand for more than 12 years.

Popular Foxtel TV program Industry Leaders noticed the success of Oil Garden and will share the brand's story through Ms Princi-Jones.

Industry Leaders - an Annex Media Production -showcases the inspiration of individuals and businesses that are revolutionising and shaping their industry for the better.
